I have got this experience that I have electrostatic from my body, it happen sometime where when I touches someone or touches something, I can feel some sparks come out from my body...and the other person that I touched can felt a tiny pinch. Do you have the same phenomenon happen to you? Do you know why it happen? I still trying to figure out from where or what caused the electrostatic. Please share your experience here!

Yes, that happens to me a lot at job because of the carpets, and even more when I use wool sweaters, I get electrostatic when I touch the desk, doors, and even when I touch the plastic glasses... hahah it's funny, very funny!!!

Hi Elrvld, Nice to meet you! In your case is caused by the material that you contact, but in my case I just wear a normal T-shirt and most of the time I have got the electrostatic in my body. I tried many way by touching a metal or touching the floor but still couldn't get rid of the static. I do not know whether this will affect my health or not.

We also experience that at the office. We here the sound of the spark and we feel like we were pinch. I am still wondering what is the cause, mostly this static happen in an airconditioned room right?

That happen many time to me, sometime I can only felt that it is there, but when it is stronger, I can hear the sound of spark. But so far I still have not able to see any real spark :) I believe this is related to the environment, may be the dry air mostly in a air conditioned room. And may be it caused by the handphone...

yspmyl yes I have had that happen to me too from just walking across a carpeted floor. the air is too dry and the friction from our feet causes the electric shock when you go to turn on a light.Its the friction of our feet rubbing the carpet that causes a minor electric charge. more fun.

Hi Hatley! It happen to me without contact or rubbed with any woven or cotton materials but it just so happen to me, even when I was shopping in a mall it also occur in my body..do you have any idea I can get rid of this? Some time it hurt, I can felt the pain just like someone using a needle to pinch you...
